2 Jimmy Creed – Did everything but win last time in a strong effort; exits a bullet work and picks up Garrett Gomez.

4 Valley Cat – Has won 2 of his last 3 starts so he is razor sharp; suspect will sit in the back half and rally wide late.

2 Baron Von Red – Tried turf again after a sharp win last out; he has tactical speed which is helpful with the turf rail out 20 feet.

Long Shot – 7 He’s Very Rare

Race 7 – 1 1/8th miles, $150,000 Swaps, 3-year-olds

5 Liaison – Beaten favorite in the Affirmed continues to under perform; he’ll be a short price and no excuses with these.

Long Shot – 1 Rousing Sermon

Race 8 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Long Shot – 3 Pursuitofparadise

Best Bet – 2 Jimmy Creed (race 5)
